I am currently working on the following topics:
If you would like to see drafts of any of the above work, please get in touch.
I am a philosopher based at the University of Leeds.
The main focus of my research is in epistemology. I am interested in how our epistemic practices and capacities affect our lives as social, political, and moral agents, and vice versa. In this connection, I have written on topics including the epistemology of taboo, the nature of intellectual vice, epistemic paternalism, snobbery, and both intellectual and moral virtue. I am also interested in related areas of both ethics and feminist philosophy.
Much of my teaching is in ethics and epistemology. In the 2021-22 academic year I will be teaching a seminar in theoretical philosophy, and a range of courses across normative, applied, and meta-ethics.
I joined Leeds as a Teaching Fellow for the 2021-22 academic year. Prior to this, I spent three years as an Assistant Research Professor at the University of Connecticut. I earned my PhD in Philosophy from the University of Sheffield in 2018, where I wrote a disseration on the nature and signficance of intellectual vice, supervised by Miranda Fricker and Jules Holroyd. I also have an MPhil in Development Studies (Cambridge, 2014), and a BA in Philosophy (Sheffield, 2013).
